2 November 2020 – An Introduction to GNU Radio by Heather Lomond, M0HMO

| October 29, 2020

Heather’s presentation

A beginners’ introduction to using GNU radio to create simple amateur radio projects. Starting from the beginning Heather will introduce the GNURadio programming environment, develop a little of the theory needed to understand SDRs and then go on to use some simple GNURadio blocks to build a receiver based on one of the super cheap SDRs. Finally, she will show how to build more complex radio systems and where to go to take things to the next level.

About Heather

Ever since making my first computer in 1982 I have enjoyed playing with computers and electronics. I spent most of my career travelling around the world fixing customers’ problems with their software or hardware projects before retiring in 2016 so that I could stay at home and fix problems with my own software and hardware projects. I have never been so busy! I discovered amateur radio in 2012 but virtually never get on air as I am always too busy making things so that I can get on air. I am interested in everything from quantum computer program design to PIC programming, vintage cars, anything to do with space or astronomy and every aspect of radio from DC to Light especially if it has and SDR in it.
